    Current Employee - Rental Sales Agent in Orlando, FL (US)

    Pros

    -Great opportunity to make some money
    -Always changing atmosphere

    Cons

    -The lies (employees to customers) and the hours (airport 24hrs.)!!!!!!
    -The lack of leadership. They let top sellers get away w/anything! There are no ethics in this job!! NONE!!!!
    -Taking too many customers can seriously affect your monthly commission check. I've never heard of a company paying their employees more money to work less! Those that do their job and stay visibly at the counter take too many customers and it hinders their monthly commission check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WISH I KNEW..... They've created this culture!!

    Pros

    Chances of moving on up if you're in a office position. Good hours with better than usual pay ( if located in a airport location)

    Cons

    Very old school people. Old timers hold on to these jobs and make it really annoying to work with. The "big wiggs" think their all that when they show up. Pay could be a lot better. Stressful seasons kill you!

    Pros

    The pros to working at Avis: You receive a company car and gas for now. Good health insurance coverage.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are upper mobility. Old fashioned mentality, all who you know in the right place at right time. Work hard with no advancement. Upper management will applaud you but will not advance you. Lot's of promises with no action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions speak louder than words!

    Pros

    Avis provides top quality training to it's associates. I learned so much through the 6 week training as well as shadowing others. Good money if you work in a high foot traffic location such as sfo.

    Cons

    Terrible management.
    My sense of morality disappeared for awhile.
